The longest married couple in Popular Music created some of the classic tunes from the 60's onward. This collection has some rarities within the 3 CD package.
Barry Mann sang one major hit himself and really thought he could make it as a solo artist. Just like his songwriting compatriot at Aldon Carole King achieved in the 70's with 'Tapestry'. He always felt if only The Animals had not "stole" 'We've Gotta Get Out of This Place' his career would have grown.

A great collection of songs and some surprising performances from largely forgotten artists as well a those better remembered.

What wonderful songs this partnership wrote. Singly,jointly and with other Brill building writers. Barry Mann was a pretty good singer and should have had more records released under his own name.

I really purchased this set for "who put the bomp ....". There are so many other memorable songs in
this CD set. The price is more than reasonable, and you'll be reflecting your "teenage Years" for months
to come. A superb collection of hits from the 50s and 60s

The Songs of Mann & Weil, 60 Original Classics, NOT3CD142

Barry Mann (songwriting, vocals, piano; born February 9, 1939), Cynthia Weil (songwriting; born October 18, 1940).

Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil are among the top songwriters of the 20th Century and beyond. They are one of the longest collaborating teams in the business, having been working together since 1960. Their compositions cover a range of musical styles from big ballads such as (“On Broadway,” “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’”) to movers such as (“Kicks,” “We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place”). They are also among popular music's most prolific songwriters with Barry Mann having nearly 800 and Cynthia Weil nearly 600 works registered with BMI. So set in that context this new compilation is a most welcome "public domain" addition to our shelves.

The 3 CD set has running times of CD1 48.57; CD2 46.29 & CD3 48.30. The liner notes are once more by regular Michael Heatley. Nicely packaged with 9 small black & white photographs inside the liner and a casual portrait on the cover.CD1 covers 1960-1962; CD2 covers 1958-1962 & D3 covers 1960-1962. The emphasis appears to be on 1962 and there are plenty of well known performers including Tony Orlando; Neil Sedaka; James Darren; Bobby Rydell; Steve Lawrence; Billy Fury and Barry Mann himself.

The sound transfers are very very clear throughout. This is a nostalgic and most entertaining collection and one which has already had the thumbs up from collectors. If you have enjoyed this set then you will most likely want to listen to The Songs of Pomus & Shuman NOT3CD139.
